I've read a few mixed things about Bulaga so far. Some say that he was projected to go higher and is a great value pick. Some say that what you see with him is what you get, and that he doesn't have a lot of upside. Some have said that this is our offensive linemen for the next ten years. And some have said that we should have drafted Dez Bryant (nope). I would just say that this was the safe play, it's a good play. The Packers desperately need any help they can get on the offensive line, and even if this guy doesn't start right away, he'll definitely have a positive impact on lowering the amount of times Aaron Rodgers gets sacks. The Packers were in a position where they could have gone a number of ways, but ultimately, I think this was the right pick.
Nice work Ted. Remember when people tried to chase you out of town? I love you. Two other things I need to address about the draft real quickly:
* My cable company does not currently carry the NFL Network, and it's never been more of an issue than tonight. ESPN's coverage of the draft is so bad right now, I can't even explain it. I understand that there will be mistakes when you work in live television, especially during an event that can be as crazy as the NFL Draft. But to cover these for twenty years and then deliver a choppy performance like they are is unacceptable if you're the Leader. There have been more than a few times where Chris Berman was about five seconds away from another YouTube-type explosion, and it's painful to watch.
* Tim Tebow to the Broncos at 25? Wow. Not sure what's going on with that franchise, or what they are going to do at that position. This is a team that has a guy in Kyle Orton, who contrary to popular believe, does not suck. In addition to that, they went out and traded for Brady Quinn this offseason, who is still developing. I'm not sure what their plans are for Tebow, but I'm definitely feeling for Jimmy Clausen right now.
